Keyboard (Stand Alone, Portable)

Keyboard (Cases with iPad Non-Detachable)

Keyboard (Cases with iPad Detachable)

  • $: ProCase 11" [favorite case before the Magic Keyboard, great attachment via magnets, sturdy and fluid kickstand, protective, key area situated comfortably, but smaller keys, no function row]. | Yoozon 11" [kickstand design but keys are too far down on the keyboard, un-ergonomic] | Inateck 11" [very protective]
  • $$: Zagg Slimbook Go [on sale $50, not great, attachment system not durable]
  • $$$: Apple Magic Keyboard 11", 12.9" [best but no side protection and heavy, consider vinyl wrap, my review] | Smart Folio Keyboard 11", 12.9" [no trackpad, 2 angles, spill resistant, quiet keys] | Brydge Pro [no trackpad] and Pro+ [with trackpad] [hinge system prone to damage, can’t take iPad off as fast]


Screen Protector

  • $: iCarez Matte [personal favorite]
  • $$: amFilm Glass [great clarity, affordable] | JETech Glass [great clarity, affordable]
  • $$$: Paperlike [huge marketing push all over YouTube, very mixed reviews on Reddit ipad subs, don’t see what the fuss is about]

Stand (Drawing)

Stylus (Pencil)

  • $: [not recommended if you plan on taking notes or drawing]
  • $$: Apple Pencil [not compatible with iPad Pro 11 and 12.9 2018 and later] | Logitech Crayon [great value, compatible with all iPad Pro’s, shuts off automatically, but no pressure sensitivity or touch buttons]

  • $$: [none currently that takes full advantage of gestures]

  • $$: HyperDrive Hub Adapter [works well, but not a fan of the overall design] | HyperDrive 9-in-1 Hub [traditional design, audio out, no volume rocker] | Baseus Dock [functional design, incompatible if you use a case or the Magic Keyboard] | Apple USB C AV Multiport Adapter [good for on the go, small footprint]
